I just realized i hadn’t posted any “Nicey Sentences” in a long time. Hate to break tradition, so here we go:

Not my House

I saw this today:


There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that everyone is a house with 4 rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but we need to go into every room every day, even if it’s only to keep it clean.

I used to visit all 4 rooms every single day when one morning I began to realize it’s not my house

Most people hate to parallel park. The other day, I saw this woman trying to get out of a tight parking space. She’d bump the car in front, then back-up and strike the car behind her. This went on about 2-3 minutes.

An old hobby of mine was collecting quotations, jotting down sentences that made me chuckle, mull or just stare into space. Films, books, songs, friends, ads, posters, graffiti, evesdropping, were all great sources.

I have decided to relaunch my obsession with “nicey” sentences [this and this] Here are some of my latest collection:

“Being a husband is like any other job… It helps a lot if you like the boss.”

“Health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.”

“The more you complain, the longer God makes you live.”

“I used to be lost in the shuffle. Now I just shuffle along with the lost.”

My friend overheard an argument between his two sons, six and eight years old. They were discussing marriage. The youngest boldly declared, “I hate girls, and I’m never going to get married! “The older boy was more receptive.”Come on,” he said persuasively. “There are lots of good things about being married.””Name one!” came the challenge.The boy didn’t hesitate. “Well, if you’re watching your favourite TV show and the phone rings, you don’t have to answer it.”
